You can go to a fro-yo and get much better for a much cheaper price. Room was crowded and loud. I was practically sitting on the lap of the stranger next to me. Definitely, skip this attraction and spend your money elsewhere!!More

Christine, At THE we strive to do our best every day. We believe that $5.45 is a great price for a pint of ice cream and the opportunity to over flow your cup with inclusions. Unfortunately, we cannot control other guests in the room, but...More

Informative day trip that includes ice cream? What’s not to love? Employees were kind and helpful, hands on activities for our son, free samples, and a “make your own ice cream” add-on experience. Not badly priced. We spent about 3 hours here.

This is a definite visit when you have kids. It’s a nice experience but I was hoping for more. The experience isn’t tied to Turkey Hill at all. Not disappointed but was expecting more.

Yes because they don't charge for you to get into the gift shop/entry hall you can leave and go in, the lab part and the hands on experience part is where you have to have your ticket, but you can re-enter with your ticket... More

When either making new ice cream or asking for ice cream sample, be sure to inform that you want peanut-free ones. Also, there are plenty of different toppings. All plastic wares are free of any possible allergens.
